Astrology and winning the lottery
Did you ever win the lottery? I did not. But I happen to know the charts of 2 lucky birds and the day of birth of another one. So now I can see if there is any chance at all and make a decision about buying tickets or not. However, 3 is not a crowd:)And the 3 winner all won many millions. That, maybe, leaves the hundreds of thousands of dollars, euros and pounds for the owners of the less fortunate charts. With a ticket in the lottery people buy a moment of hope for more, without having to work hard, be a criminal or having a great talent. What is luck? I think that it is reflected by Jupiter-Uranus. (BTW, in July 2012 I added a new winner to this blog. Same aspects, same patterns....:).
The three charts convinced me that you need to have a ‘lucky chart’ to start with. All three of them have Jupiter-Uranus as the reflection of winning the lottery. Jupiter-Uranus is accompanied by Mercury-Jupiter and Mars-Jupiter aspects. Those are - in general - lucky combinations for successful decisions. Yes, some persons seem to have all the luck…
Natal charts don’t tell it all, of course. You also need to buy a ticket:) and have rather fortunate transits and progressions of the kind that show a change in life and lifestyle. Even if you planned not to change your lifestyle, your life changes because you have one important thing to worry about less: money!
The natal charts of the winners are similar when it comes to certain aspects.
(2 times conjunction, 1 very narrow trine)
Mars parallel, inconjunct Jupiter and sesquisquare Jupiter within 2 degrees of orb: for success
Two times Jupiter conjunct (and one parallel, too) Uranus and one Jupiter trine Uranus, all within 2.25 degrees orb (the combination of sudden windfall) In the charts with known hours of birth Jupiter and Uranus are in aspect with the Ascendant. Astrodatabank-source’s Jupiter and Uranus are in the house of games (the 5th house) and Pluto rules his 9th), so that there is a lucky 5-9-house combination.
Venus-Saturn (conjunct/parallel and sextile but no aspect in the chart of the third winner – who BTW seems to have spent most of it in a few years time) The 3rd winner has Venus and Saturn ‘calling’ (not making major aspects in sign and within 5 degrees orb). He also has Venus inconjunct Jupiter, symbol of too many parties!)
The combination of earning or getting money is Venus-Pluto. The Englishman has Venus quindecile Pluto (so that he will be strongly focussed on money issues).
The French lady has Sun between Venus and Pluto, mirroring ‘being surrounded by money’ or a life in the middle of ‘money issues’. The American has Venus in Scorpio (ruled by Pluto).
This is a combination of 5 found in all 3, and here are more similarities…
LUCKY MIDPOINT COMBINATIONS
The Astrodatabank-source and the French lady have midpoint combinations of:
1. Sun, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune
He has Sun sesquisquare Jupiter/Uranus and square Jupiter/Neptune
She has Uranus semi square Sun/Jupiter and Sun sesquisquare Jupiter/Neptune
2. Ascendant Jupiter, Uranus and Midheaven
He has Ascendant-Jupiter/MC and Uranus/MC
She has Ascendant-Jupiter/Uranus
3. Ascendant Pluto and Midheaven
His Pluto is sesquisquare AC/MC
Her Ascendant is square Pluto/MC
Without a birth time we can’t know the Ascendant or Midheaven (MC), unfortunately for the English young man. There is a different kind of combination of Sun, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune in his has.
a. the Sun trine Jupiter and Uranus (also Mercury and Mars in a narrow aspect with the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction)
b. Neptune in Sagittarius rises before the Sun, right after Jupiter. That is another way to make a Jupiter-Neptune combination important.
This combination of Jupiter and Uranus seems to be very fortunate. And an inconjunction of Venus (in Taurus) and Jupiter (in Sagittarius) might mean that you get a disproportionate amount of money to spend on fun (like in the chart of the Englishman).
MORE, LIKE FIXED STAR, SABIAN DEGREE AND TRINES
The Midheaven of the French woman is in the 24th degree of Libra, on the fixed star Arcturus. Arcturus promises richness (http://users.winshop.com.au/annew/new_page_1.htm). And Dane Rudyhar’s idea of this degree is about a butterfly with an extra wing. Yes, with an extra amount of money you have more abilities to fly away…Another interesting thing in her chart is that Quaoar is in a narrow hard aspect with Jupiter and Uranus. Quaoar creates new worlds, new realities, and Jupiter/Uranus makes it a pleasant change.
The Englishman has 5 trines within 5 degrees orb! His Sun 160 d Pluto (quatri novile) means ‘rejoicing to be a winner’. The amount of trines is maybe the reason why it was ‘easy come, easy go’…
THE LUCKY DAY
There is only one complete case with a known chart and a known lucky number date, I am afraid. In that chart, of course, the facts are corresponding with meaningful transits and progressions.
On the day of the lottery (February 1993 for mr. Astrodatabank-source):
- transit Pluto was trine Jupiter and Uranus.
In the progressed chart Jupiter had gotten closer.
- transit Jupiter was opposition Moon
- primary Jupiter was sextile natal Uranus in 1993
- transit Uranus conjunct progressed Sun
- transit Pluto sextile Progressed Midheaven
- transit Jupiter sextile progressed Sun
- solar return chart for birthday in 1992 had Pluto opposition Midheaven
- solar return chart for birthday in 1993 had Jupiter conjunct Ascendant
The Englishman (chart without hour of birth, Midheaven, Moon or Ascendant) had in the month of the lucky ticket:
- transit Uranus sextile Mars (and Mars is sesquisquare Jupiter and Uranus in his natal chart)
- transit Neptune sextile the natal Sun (for an easy escape into a world of dreams, making your dreams come true the easy way)
- progressed Sun was in the final 3 degrees of a sign, reflecting a period of changing lifestyle
- a growing opposition with natal and progressed Pluto (another sign of changing times and challenges).
Perhaps there was a transit of Jupiter with the Moon or Midheaven, but we don’t know the positions of Moon and Midheaven.
His fortune was perhaps not always fortunate. Four years after winning he had to spend 6 months in jail for affray.
C. The moment that the French lady won, is unknown.
I have a lot of indications like that (but not all of them). I had transits and progressions like that recently (but not all together in a short period of time). I didn’t win the lottery. I didn’t (even if was so close to matches with the winners), so there is still a chance that you are the One. Statistics don’t work the other way around and perhaps the results of this study would be completely different if we had the chats of 100 winners. Of course we don't have those (and better not, for them). Nevertheless: the aspects are not surprising. They ARE lucky aspects in astrology. These aspects accompanied the potential winners on their lucky day.
So we can't be sure and why would we care. What would be a ‘sudden windfall’ if you could calculate it and if it would not be a surprise?
PS Source is Astrology and gambling for the person who was born December 5 1954 at 12h19 in Brighton (73W57 en 40N35). The French lady was born in Forbach, August 4 1950 at 17h08 (source Astrolab). The data of the Englishman were found on Wikipedia.
